Nether Wallop is a village in central Hampshire, Englandmarker.

It is part of The Wallops: Nether, Middle and Over Wallopmarker. The name derives from 'waella' (street) and 'hop' (valley) or the place of springing water. Nether Wallop was used as the setting for Miss Marple's village of St. Mary Mead in the BBC adaptations of Agatha Christie's novels. The village contains many old thatched cottages and has been featured in books and TV programmes as one of the prettiest villages in England.

The church is partly Anglo-Saxon and unique fragments of frescos apparently dating to the late Anglo-Saxon period have been discovered.
